Man United fans plead for Tchouaméni addition following display alongside Pogba vs Ukraine

Man United fans plead for Tchouaméni addition following display alongside Pogba vs Ukraine

 

The Manchester United faithful have taken to social media in numbers this evening, to call on the club to target France talent Aurelien Tchouameni.

Martial secures share of the spoils

Tchouameni was back in action with his country a short time ago.

After being handed his international bow by France boss Didier Deschamps in a meeting with Bosnia and Herzegovina earlier this week, the 21-year-old’s first start for Les Bleus swiftly followed tonight.

Deschamps and co. made the trip to Kiev, for a World Cup qualifying showdown with Ukraine.

The clash marked an important one for the world champions, who had already come under intense scrutiny after dropping points in two of their four qualifiers to date.

When all was said and done on Saturday, though, the concerns being faced by the French only continued to mount.

A hard-fought affair ultimately culminated in the spoils being shared, courtesy of a 1-1 stalemate in the Ukrainian capital.

It was the hosts who took the lead in the matchup, when Mykola Shaparenko bent a wonderful effort beyond the helpless Hugo Lloris from the edge of the area:

France were clearly rattled, and not looking like carving out too many clear-cut chances of their own.

Early in the 2nd-half, though, Les Bleus struck decisively.

After a lofted ball into the area made its way to the feet of Anthony Martial, the Manchester United man made no mistake, slotting a right-footed finish just beyond the grasp of Andriy Pyatov in the Ukraine goal:

Tchouameni eyed

As outlined, though, it was not the goalscoring efforts of their current star which in fact piqued attentions across the United fanbase on Saturday evening.

Instead, it was the display of one of France’s up and coming stars.

The player in question? Aurelien Tchouameni.

Monaco standout Tchouameni, as outlined above, was handed his 2nd cap for the world champions tonight, and did not at all disappoint.

A superb all-action display saw the 21-year-old shine alongside Paul Pogba in the middle of the park, with those of a Red Devils persuasion, in turn, having since urged their side to push for a similar partnership to develop at club level in the near future, too:

On a side note, Tchouameni was actually forced to limp off late in the action in Ukraine, following a heavy challenge in the middle of the park. We wish him a speedy recovery.
